Virtual care codes and CME update

January 24, 2024

Dr. Paul Parks, AMA PresidentDear Members,

Enhanced virtual mental health codes are now live

We were pleased to see the Alberta Health Bulletin issued earlier today announcing that enhanced virtual care codes for mental health services provided are now live. Physicians can now submit eligible claims for enhanced virtual care services – retroactive to October 24, 2023. This will be welcome news for many physicians and their patients.

Continuing Medical Education

The 2023-24 Continuing Medical Education Program is now open, and physicians can now submit claims (up to $2,200) for CME expenses incurred between April 1, 2023, and March 31, 2024. Physicians have until March 31, 2024, to submit their claims for this benefit.

The CME program is a deliverable through the AMA Agreement and is fully funded by Alberta Health. Program details and tips for an easy and quick CME claim are available on the AMA website. To submit your claim, log in to the member dashboard.
